Dan Schneider

Vice President, MRC Free Speech America, MRC Business and External Affairs

Dan Schneider is a lawyer, policy professional, and political strategist. Throughout his lengthy career, he has worked in Washington, D.C., New York City, and Zheng Zhou, China (also known as iPhone City).

Dan is currently the Vice President of Free Speech America, MRC Business, and the External Affairs division. He previously served as the executive director of the American Conservative Union, which organizes CPAC. His work in government has included roles in the White House, executive branch agencies, the U.S. Senate, and the U.S. House of Representatives.

He was awarded a Juris Doctorate from Columbia University Law School and two undergraduate degrees from the University of Kansas.

In 1988, Dan broke the world record for the “highest elevation golf shot” when he used a five-iron at the second base camp of Annapurna in the Himalayas. Sadly and shockingly, the Guinness Book of World Records refused to certify this incredible achievement, which Dan remains “very bitter” about to this day.
